Get lost in the sultry world of the Game Maker series with The Master , book two, and The Player , book three!

Meet the Professional.

Mafiya enforcer Aleksandr "The Siberian" Sevastyan's loyalty to his boss is unwavering, until he meets the boss's long-lost daughter, a curvy, tantalizing redhead who haunts his mind and heats his blood like no other. Ordered to protect her, Aleksandr will do anything to possess her as well--on his own wicked terms.

He makes the rules.

Grad student Natalie Porter has barely recovered from her first encounter with the dark and breathtaking Siberian when he whisks her away to Russia, thrusting her into a world of extreme wealth and wanton pleasures.

In the game of obsession, two players are better than one.

Yet all is not as it seems. To remove Natalie from an enemy's reach, Aleksandr spirits her into hiding. From an opulent palace in Russia to the decadent playgrounds of the mega-rich in Paris, the two lovers tempt each other's boundaries to discover whether their darkest--and most forbidden--fantasies really can come true...

A very hot read!!! Hotter than Fifty Shades!

The story-line was much better in this book....but the sex scenes in THE MASTER was hotter. I got both in the PROFESSIONAL. So I have to give this book the highest rating.

A scorching hot love story that sizzles with sassy dialogue, confrontational arguments, and hotter than hot sex.

I loved this book. It was sexy and it did have a story. She is now on my list of favorite author.

Enjoyed the book. It had a good storyline, but it had A LOT more sex than anything. Not that I'm against sex btw. I did like that he became "unburdened" in the end, and even for as great as the sex was, I would have liked to have had a bit more storyline. But a good, fast read and worth your time. Oh, and Jaxx? I think Cole does a great erotica :)

Not what I expected from Kresley Cole, and I was absolutely blown out of the water with The Professional. She did a fantastic job with this new theme and I loved everything about it; the angst, the humor, the sexy scenes, and redemption of the tortured hero. It delivered and I was left thinking about this book way after I finished it.

These kinds of books were around long before Shades of Gray ever came out.
This is much steamier than her previous stuff, but I still really liked it. Just be prepared with a glass of water to cool down!

I love every one of Cole's Immortal After Dark Series so I picked this up automatically. It is so awful that I'm embarrassed for Kresley. It's like lots of writers want to get in on the Shades of Gray money while it is still a hot happening. I think Cole should have stuck with what she is good at, because it is definitely not erotica.
